not have used when he first described face booshdescribe ed facebook. here's what he said to investors. quote, facebook was not originally founded to be a company. we've always cared primarily about our social mission. well, the company's mission now is to make money off of you and its 955 million users. it has to make money. that's just the reality of it. now you're a public company. here's aouple things they're planning to do supposedly. there's a rumored want button. there's a like button on facebook now if you like something. the want button lets you tell your friends what you'd like them to buy for you. maybe it's a wedding or baby registry thing. it's supposed to link you to spending money. there's also a new service called facebook exchange which traction what you do on the web and shows you ads when you go back on facebook based on where you have been. according to bloomberg, facebook is also working on a cell phone to try to make money from people on their cell phones which has been a real issue for the company. mark zuckerberg, though, shot down that report on the call. the t
to let us know his whole apartment was booby trapped and if anyone opened that door, there would have been more carnage. >> it's interesting that he did that. the ultimate plan -->> i can't figure that out. >> i think his ultimate plan was to get away and when he was, then, caught in the movie theater parking lot, i'm not sure why he decided it was a good thing and decided to tell the police officers. otherwise, more lives would have been lost at his apartment complex. back to the court hearing for a minute, the bond will be set. obviously he's probably not going to get out on bond with the crimes that he's facing. it's not expected to last long at all and, of course, the prosecution has 72 hours to file formal charges. and they undoubtedly will release some of that evidence in the court hearing today but probably have enough evidence to be able to hold him. >> while we learn more about what will happen during the suspect's court appearance today, family, friends and loved ones came together to remember the 12 lives cut short on friday. and there are still victims fighting for their
on a day like today. thank you. how do you play the market today? matt cheslock is here with us. all right. i talked to some guys down here saying the prospect of quantitative 3 is back on the table. others say, no, it's off the table. how do you trade a market like this? >> very carefully. you know? i would continue to probably continue to short it. getting worse and dow 1204 probably short more. i think things get really bad and fast and no confidence in europe right now. i don't think the number is bad enough. i'm in that camp. you know, i think they ratcheted up the numbers yesterday too early. i think the expectations were too good. i think we're right where we should be so i don't think the fed will do anything from that regard. >> how much of the selloff we saw today and seeing today is because there's very little volume, a lot of traders aren't on the floor here today. a lot of investors are away. so is it a thin market making the moves more extreme than they would be or not? >> yeah. you know, i don't consider a 160-point move that extreme with the numbers we have got. manufacturi

of boos. >> he literally came to our house and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> and there you have it. that was the wrapup, at least from that presidency. shannon travis is live from washington, d.c., this morning. shannon, it really looks like mitt romney's just not backing down at all from this, and there are all sorts of people weighing in on all sorts of different reasons for why he may have gone to the naacp annual conference. wrap it up for me to start with whether this is going to have a residual effect in the negative or in the positive. >> reporter: well, we're still trying to weigh that, ashleigh. when i was watching it, it felt like one of those reality tv shows where the candidate on stage either lives or dyes by boos or applause. he was booed when he mentioned obama care which was a little surprising, because the people at naacp, it's not surprising that he is opposed to obama care. he got booed when he said he was a better president for african-americans than president obama is. last night at a fundraiser in montana governor romney basically pla
